He could hardly remember anything...heck, Swamp could hardly remember his very own name. What about his family? Did he even have one, did they even know he existed? The built tom ducked underneath some bracken, returning to his make-shift home...except, there was some random, pesky stranger in the way. Stiffening in rage (and slight fear), Swamp stepped forward with his coat bristling.
"Who are you, and what are you doing on my turf?" He spoke lowly, ears flattened as the smoke she-cat quickly turned around, shifting nervously. But she held her ground, nonetheless.
"I'm...Fog. I saw you leave the same building a long while ago, that...memory-stealing twoleg place. I wanted to speak with you, I...I wanted to know if you had answers." She said swiftly, standing with her chest heaving quickly, although she tried to remain brave. What if he was hostile? She didn't know how to defend herself, she didn't remember how to defend herself. She noticed that he glanced around nervously. "No worries, we're along. I scouted the area out before I approached. It's just me 'n you."Silverstar 03:34, December 7, 2016 (UTC)
Melody and her..brother? Yeah that's who this tom was. Her brother, Spheal. "W-What happened to the others?" She asked him, her dark eyes turning to him. The tip of her tail giving off an odd glow.
Spheal stared at her, his memory foggy. "I- I don't know. There was a pale tom, I can't remember his name though." He felt cold in his chest. Painful cold.
What was going on?I solemnly swearthat I am up to no good 03:40, December 7, 2016 (UTC)
Swamp shifted uncomfortably. "I don't remember anything, just...escaping." He responded tensely, eyeing the stranger as she stood before him. She let out a trouble sigh.
"No, I mean...I-I've seen what you can do. The plants, every time you pass them, they always look...brighter."Silverstar 21:05, December 7, 2016 (UTC)
The sun shone down on Melody, she had begun to feel rather "heated" in a sense and had noticed that her pelt felt like it was..on fire. Before long, Speahl had glanced up to see a sort of a spark on his sister's tail tip. His pale eyes widened in surprise.
Swamp cast her a puzzled glance. Maybe he glowed, who knew and who cared? "Ok...and your point?" He replied with a swift flick of his tail, not yet letting his guard down. The smoke tabby she-cat let out a loud huff, as if she was annoyed by the tom.
"This means are you aren't normal. That place you ran out of- I came from there too. Something wasn't right about that place, it changed us."Silverstar 16:48, December 11, 2016 (UTC)
Thorn, the earth user, had woken up with barely his memory in contact as to what happened. Was there a blast? He faintly remembered smelling fire. His sister, Spirit, had saved him somehow?
Spirit cast her brother a weird look, she sat watching out as he had slept. "You don't have to be the older one you know?" Thorn said. I solemnly swearthat I am up to no good 17:35, December 11, 2016 (UTC)
"And your point? What do you want me to do about it?" Swamp demanded, now towering over this she-cat as he took a bold step forward, lashing his long tail. Fog didn't appear frightened by the intimidating tom, and held his piercing gaze.
"You're strong, you seem to have leader qualities. Start something like a Clan."Silverstar 18:29, December 11, 2016 (UTC)
Melody and Spheal walked along until they came to the two younger cats, Spirit and Thorn. "Hey your from that place aren't you?" The tabby and white molly asked. Her gaze meeting Thorn's. Thorn and Spirit nod in unison. "Us too, we were looking for the tom that got away. A big burly one, you seen him?" Again their heads shake no in unison.
"So are you like lovers or?" Spirit's eyes widen at his. "Oh dear Lord, no!" She exclaimed. "Thorn is my brother, I'm Spirit." She said. I solemnly swearthat I am up to no good 05:37, December 13, 2016 (UTC)
The unusual tom cast the smoke tabby a sharp, warning glare before he stepped away, hackles raising. "I'm a rogue, I was born that way. I'm not a clan cat, nor shall I ever be." Swamp curled a lip at Fog, who simply blinked in a passively annoyed manner. He was a stubborn guy.
"So you're to say that we're to just wonder the streets forever? Because you know very well that our kind will never fit in." Fog pointed out in a flat tone, sniffing sourly as she glowered at the tabby tom. "We aren't normal, we're special. You and I both know very well that twolegs will kill us, and other factions will reject us in a heartbeat."Silverstar 14:45, March 24, 2017 (UTC)
Melody sat with her siblings, both had seemed unaffected by the experiments they had been put through. The white molly sat about two feet away from the stream, the grass around her slightly frosted over. "Melli," the voice of her brother called from by the stream. "Hm?" She murmured softly casting her copper gaze towards him.
Rufus turned to face her, his gaze going towards the frosted grass. "You really should quit thinking about that place." He told her, lashing his tabby tail. Helen, her sister, rested a few feet from the stream as well, napping as she usually did.
Meanwhile, a heavily pregnant queen sauntered through the unclaimed land. She wasn't so keen on the Clans much anymore and truly she never understand why they were so intent on fighting over land or leadership at that fact. The battle-scarred queen ducked through some bushes before she pushed onwards. She knew she'd soon have a litter to care for and since her mate's death she had vowed to raise them against Clanlife. I solemnly swearthat I am up to no good 16:12, March 27, 2017 (UTC)
"We? You suddenly speak for cats who may or may not be alive, and may or may not be affected by that...place." Swamp spoke in a darkening, threatening tone as his gaze firmly rested on the smoke she-cat, lashing his tail a single time. "I am not your mother, cat, nor am I theirs! Your a rogue, be a rogue, learn to survive on your own! Stop being a mewling, weak kitten and learn to grow up!" Swamp roared at the molly, his voice rising and frightening off the nearby birds. And as his anger rose, so did his powers.
Fog, as if by a mysterious force of power, randomly passed out and fell to the ground, while the surrounding trees withered and died, Swamp only feeling more powerful. And then, within a heartbeat, a glowing ball of coursing mana, life force, and fire grew above the tom. And then, the trees got fried, and everything went black.Silverstar 16:16, March 27, 2017 (UTC)
Melody met her brother's gaze. "its rather hard not to considering it was torture." The white molly said firmly, her tail curling around her oddly cold paws. Her burning amber eyes stayed on his pale yellow ones. "I don't know if we're the only ones left, but maybe just maybe there are others out there like us." She said. Rufus shook his head.
"Melli, your the only one with powers as far as we know." He said softly. Helen woke then, copper eyes on her two siblings. "Rufus is right Melody. You need to push that place from your mind." I solemnly swearthat I am up to no good 16:23, March 27, 2017 (UTC)
It felt like hours later when he awoke, but maybe it had just been a matter of minutes? He couldn't tell. As Swamp blinked open his eyes, Fog stood before him, looking rather unamused. "Uh-huh, told you we aren't normal." She spoke flatly, snorting softly. Swamp blinked in shock. All around him, the trees had been burnt to ash, along with the grass and any unfortunate nearby animals. How was she still alive?Silverstar 16:25, March 27, 2017 (UTC)
Melody gave a heavy sigh before she spoke again. "You think its easy for me to calm down? To just forget a place that tortured us nearly our whole lives. The things we'll be able to do now." She snapped angrily. She hated how they only looked for the simple. I solemnly swearthat I am up to no good 16:33, March 27, 2017 (UTC)
"You just absorbed the life around you, and burned trees to the ground. But no, I see that alllllll the time." Fog sarcastically grumbled, eyeing Swamp. "But...I've never seen anything so powerful. You have a gift, and with that gift you should build a sanctuary and protect it...even the trees feel...unnatural." Silverstar 20:47, March 27, 2017 (UTC)
Helen and Rufus shuffled uneasily. "Melody, I doubt there's anyone left." He said, his gaze turning to Helen who nodded her agreement. They both knew Melody had a temper when she got upset and they could tell this was upsetting but she needed to understand. "Doubt? That's all there is. Its not proof." She stated coldly before she stood and ran off into the forest. I solemnly swearthat I am up to no good 14:16, March 28, 2017 (UTC)
"I have no gift, I didn't even do that!" Swamp mumbled stubbornly, glowering away from the younger she-cat with a bitter huff. Fog narrowed her eyes. "Uh-huh, of course you didn't try to absorb all the life around you, and then burn down all the trees. That just happened naturally." The sarcastic molly muttered.Silverstar 14:32, March 29, 2017 (UTC)
Melody came upon the sound of fighting, it wasn't long - maybe a few seconds - before she saw the actual fight. A foreign-built black tom was battling a silvery-brown classic tabby tom, on the sidelines were two she-cats; a pale ginger and white tabby and a blue-gray. They weren't trying to stop it but neither was Melody. The four cats had been traveling together since first meeting and it was obvious from the beginning that neither Godric nor Salazar got along. In fact they loved fighting. My name isLord Voldemort 14:36, March 29, 2017 (UTC)
"Fine...well, I didn't try to do it, obviously. And how could you have possibly survived?" Swamp gave a curious tip of his broad head, and Fog grinned proudly. "No idea."Silverstar 14:39, March 29, 2017 (UTC)
Godric shoved the skinny, foreign tom forward with as much force as he had, Salazar shoving back. Finally, Helga stepped forward. "Enough!" She shouted, eyes glaring at the two. "We aren't here to fight." The tabby and white molly said. My name isLord Voldemort 14:42, March 29, 2017 (UTC)
Sourly, Swamp glanced down at his paws. "...I'll consider your words, then." He finally muttered under his breath, causing the smoke tabby's eyes to light up. "But do know that I will only take in those with powers like myself. Those who are ungraced with special abilities can go cower in those petty Clans."Silverstar 14:47, March 29, 2017 (UTC)
Melody backed up and continued on her way, copper eyes cast to the ground as she walked. Her white pelt shone out like the sun in the night in the dark forest. She came to a stream and she watched as the top layer of the water frosted over before cracking. She frowned, she needed to get her emotions under control. My name isLord Voldemort 15:55, March 29, 2017 (UTC)
Fog's eyes widened. "So you'll do it?" She gasped excitedly, while Swamp let out a soft sigh. "Yes, but my faction, MY rules, kid." Silverstar 16:09, March 29, 2017 (UTC)
Melody heard the soft voices of more cats, how many cats lived in this territory? She crept forward seeing Swamp and Fog. Copper eyes on them, her ears laid back silently. She looked away. They looked familiar. My name isLord Voldemort 16:16, March 29, 2017 (UTC)
"I think that won't be a problem, seeing that you demolished a forest without even trying. You'd scare the marbles out of just about anyone." Fog replied to the faded tabby with a curt nod.Silverstar 16:23, March 29, 2017 (UTC)
Demolish? The white loner thought confused. How would he even do that? She forced herself to stay low instead of darting forward to ask questions. My name isLord Voldemort 16:26, March 29, 2017 (UTC)
"Fried, not 'demolished', there's a difference." The powerful tom responded, pacing a distance before stopping. "This'll take time, everyone will be in hiding, and they'll be required to prove their agilities to us." Silverstar 16:32, March 29, 2017 (UTC)
Melody listened ears pricked forward at the talk of a special group, she leaned forward and accidentally snapped a twig in half. She froze, copper eyes wide as the ground began to frost around her in fear, this time it wasn't light. The air was beginning to chill and the molly could see her breath fanning out. My name isLord Voldemort 18:16, March 29, 2017 (UTC)
Swamp twitched an ear as he heard a crack in the distance, gaze hardening and body tensing. At the sign of his tensing, Fog quickly cringed. "Please don't freak out, I'd rather not avoid yet another disaster of your sudden rage."Silverstar 18:20, March 29, 2017 (UTC)
Melody swallowed as she lightly lifted a forepaw in hopes not to snap another twig. The white loner's ears were now flat against her head, but she wasn't focused on the cats. She was focused on not causing everything freeze. My name isLord Voldemort 18:28, March 29, 2017 (UTC)
The tabby tom let out a soft, offended huff. "I'm no emotionless cat, nor do I have any sort of 'anger issues', I'm perfectly capable of controlling myself." He responded to the young smoke tabby, who twitched her ears in response.Silverstar 18:30, March 29, 2017 (UTC)
The white cat had finally gotten her emotions and weather issues under control before long it was a decent temperature. Melody a gave a sigh of relief, she'd need t learn to control her emotions better lest she actually lost control. She didn't know what she'd do if she had accidentally hurt or killed someone. My name isLord Voldemort 18:47, March 29, 2017 (UTC)
After a long moment of silence, Swamp let his gaze fall back over to Fog. "...So where do we start?" As a response, Fog slowly shuffled her paws in a nervous manner. "...I know just the cat."Silverstar 18:53, March 29, 2017 (UTC)
Melody frowned before she finally stood, heart beating in her ears and chest. The white molly turned and quickly made her way back to her siblings. Maybe they wanted to hear the news? A group, a safe haven for them. My name isLord Voldemort 19:31, March 29, 2017 (UTC)
Swamp narrowed his eyes. "Do they have proven special abilities? If they don't, they can beat it." He growled with a twitch of his whiskers. Fog nodded quickly. "Oh yes, they do. It's just..." she trailed off hesitantly before shaking her head hastily. "Never mind. But yes, they certainly have powers. Mind if I take you to them?"Silverstar 19:36, March 29, 2017 (UTC)
Melody finally arrived, eyes wide in front of her siblings. "There are others like us!" She exclaimed. Rufus rolled his eyes and gave a heavy sigh. "Melod-" She cut him off.
"Don't you dare tell me I'm imagining things. We're different and you know it!" She snapped. Helen stayed silent as Rufus flattened his ears at his sister's outburst. My name isLord Voldemort 19:39, March 29, 2017 (UTC)
"Yes, lead the way." Swamp let out a soft sigh. Why him? Why not pick some other cat? Heck, why didn't Fog just go and create a faction of her own? The pale tabby tom followed the little smoke she-cat through twisting roots and thick undergrowth. The night was slowly setting in, and the sky was growing dark. "It's the perfect time for her to show you her powers as well."Silverstar 19:42, March 29, 2017 (UTC)
Melody glared at her brother in silence before Helen interrupted it. "Melody..why don't you tell us." She urged the molly softly. Melody glanced at Helen eyes narrowed before she relaxed a bit. She then began to tell what she had overheard. My name isLord Voldemort 19:45, March 29, 2017 (UTC)
Fog was first to push her way into a clearing, where a black she-cat who was similar to the night-sky with her silver-flecked pelt, sat silently. "...Galaxy?" The smoke molly gently called to the star-seeking loner.Silverstar 19:47, March 29, 2017 (UTC)
Melody finally finished and waited for siblings reaction to the news. Rufus frowned. "A special group for cats with powers?" He asked to be certain. Helen stayed silent. My name isLord Voldemort 19:50, March 29, 2017 (UTC)
The speckled she-cat turned, sitting beside a still pool that reflected the map of stars above. Her eyes gleamed in the glowing moonlight. "Yes, Fog? I see you've brought a...friend." Galaxy murmured, while Fog nodded quickly, remaining suspiciously nervous. "Yes, his name's Swamp."Silverstar 19:54, March 29, 2017 (UTC)
Melody nodded, copper eyes finally adjusting. It was nearly dark, they would need to find a place to sleep for tonight. That was when Helen spoke. "So there are other like "us"?" She asked suspicion in her voice. My name isLord Voldemort 13:14, March 30, 2017 (UTC)
"And why have you brought him here?" The dark she-cat murmured lowly, eyeing the tom's swirling tabby pelt. Fog attempted to straighten herself up a bit, clearing her throat nervously. "We- he's looking for recruits...he came from the bad place as well, and he too has been...erm, 'changed'. He wishes to form a faction to protect cats like us, seeing that clans won't accept us."Silverstar 14:41, March 30, 2017 (UTC)
"Yes," Melody said patiently. "We could join them, have a permanent home." She said hopefully. Helen shuffled her paws, she hated staying in one place too long. Would she be okay with that? Melody needed the comfort for a permanent home. She looked at Rufus with "raised brows". Rufus shrugged. "I suppose so, we'll look for him tomorrow." He said gruffly. My name isLord Voldemort 15:59, March 30, 2017 (UTC)
"Then why isn't he speaking for himself?" Galaxy spoke flatly with a twitch of her long, silvery whiskers, eyeing the tom cautiously. Swamp stepped forward, speaking in a low voice. "Because 'he' wasn't given a chance to speak." He briefly shot Fog an impatient glance before returning his attention to the star-speckled she-cat. "But are you interested?" There was something about her eyes...something that sparked a memory deep within Swamp, yet he couldn't clarify what it was.Silverstar 16:03, March 30, 2017 (UTC)
Melody grinned before she curled up in her nest, it wasn't before long she was asleep. My name isLord Voldemort 16:10, March 30, 2017 (UTC)
"Can't say I'm not." Galaxy said hastily before flicking her tail. "Although I'm perfectly capable of defending myself." Swamp couldn't agree more to her statement; the molly was clearly well-built and muscular, and if she had powers...she'd be a great threat. "But I must admit, I do get lonely living by myself...So I'll join you, Swamp."
He grinned at her claim. "Good to know...however, you must prove your powers to us, as I won't accept any typical cats who aren't gifted like- Hey!" Swamp snapped as the dark molly ignored him, returning her gaze to the star-speckled sky. And with a single paw, she made a motion to the sky. As if they were being pushed along, a patch of stars moved to the side, following her movements. "That's not all I can do, my friend..."Silverstar 16:14, March 30, 2017 (UTC)
After pinning Swamp to the ground with some gravity-changing, Galaxy was accepted into the group, and they returned to the fried forest-area to sleep in peace.Silverstar 16:24, March 30, 2017 (UTC)
(Mind if I do a timeskip? To the next morning?) Rufus shrugged as they talked, Helen's gaze on the horizon. It wasn't long before both fell asleep. My name isLord Voldemort 16:27, March 30, 2017 (UTC)
(That's fine) Fog eyed the two before falling asleep.Silverstar 16:28, March 30, 2017 (UTC)
The next morning Melody woke before her brother and sister, she quickly woke them up demanding to leave. "Let's go, we need to find them before they move elsewhere." She said. Rufus looked at Helen before nodding. "Alright let's go." My name isLord Voldemort 16:32, March 30, 2017 (UTC)
Galaxy was still sleeping when Fog and Swamp awoke, and he was quick to corner her and demand answers. "You know something, something about me, and about her. I want answers, now." He growled quickly, eyes narrowed sharply as the adolescent froze up. "It has something to do with your powers, doesn't it, Fog?"Silverstar 16:34, March 30, 2017 (UTC)
The three headed out towards the region that she had seen Fog and Swamp. The white molly looked around, running ahead a few times getting excited. My name isLord Voldemort 16:38, March 30, 2017 (UTC)
"You have to prove them to stay with us anyways, so you best start spilling the beans. What aren't you telling me?" Swamp lashed his tail a single time, and Fog hesitated. "Alright, alright, I can see...things. Like, the past and what not...you two know each other from before."Silverstar 16:41, March 30, 2017 (UTC)
Melody darted forward catching the scent of the two cats, her ears pointed forward as she tracked the cats. They seemed to have moved suddenly. That was when Rufus and Helen gasped. "What?" She mumbled as she tracked the scents. "The forest its burnt." My name isLord Voldemort 19:06, March 30, 2017 (UTC)
"What do you mean be 'know each other'?" Swamp slowly tipped his head curiously, voice softening greatly. Fog slowly shook her head. "You'll find out eventually. Be patient. Remember, attempting to fry me won't have any effect, I'm...tolerant."Silverstar 19:42, March 30, 2017 (UTC)
Melody shrugged off her siblings silence off as she continued to track the two, her scent all of a sudden, stopping. She lifted her head to see two cats atop the hill. Was this them?My name isLord Voldemort 19:50, March 30, 2017 (UTC)
The pair went silent before Swamp took in a deep breath. "What was that? The thing I did that burned down the forest and killed everything around me, except for you?" He asked quietly, bowing his head in an almost disappointed manner. Was he truly a monster?Silverstar 19:55, March 30, 2017 (UTC)
The white molly crept forward slowly being sure to stand tall as she did, for they might think she was an enemy if she crouched. Rufus and Helen were close behind her. My name isLord Voldemort 16:28, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
Fog hesitated. "...It's called Nova, one of the strongest things around. You absorb the life around you to create it, and then it'll fry whatever you wish."Silverstar 16:47, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
Melody crept closer, copper eyes on the two until she noticed a sleeping cat. She turned her gaze back onto the two cats that were talking. "Hello?" She called, hoping they wouldn't attack. My name isLord Voldemort 17:04, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
"Strongest thing? Well good, then I can fry whoever I'd-" Swamp halted in his speech upon hearing a stranger, his hackles rising as he turned quickly. Fog immediately ducked and got out of Swmap's way, uninterested in getting fried. "Who're you, and what do you want?"Silverstar 17:19, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
Well this was harder than she thought.. The white molly stood straight under his sharp gaze. "I-I'm Melody, and these," she flicked her tail at Rufus and Helen. "Are my brother and sister, we heard of your plan to make a group for special cats." She said. My name isLord Voldemort 17:23, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
Swamp raised his head, standing tall. Word travelled fast, no? Fog, meanwhile, watched Swamp cautiously. He made a seemingly terrific leader, despite what he seemed to think. He was already acting protective over the few cats he had within his faction. "In order to join my group, you need to prove your powers to me. Those who have no powers may not join, Clans can take them in."Silverstar 17:25, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
Melody nodded, she cast her gaze at her siblings nervously. Maybe they had powers and secretly knew about it? She gave a small sigh before she closed her eyes and remembered what had happened. As the memory flooded her mind, the air around them seemed to crackle with heat and intensify. She flinched slightly before she continued with the memory. The heat grew worse and the molly quickly thought of a small ball of heat that surrounded the cats and sent it over to Swamp.
Rufus and Helen watched as the heat suddenly disappeared, but the air around Swamp seemed to crackle with the heat. My name isLord Voldemort 17:31, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
Swamp flicked his tail hastily. "Then you're accepted. And them? What are their powers?" He'd ask the molly for her name and age later, business needed to be completed first.Silverstar 17:33, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
Melody opened her mouth to speak but Rufus interrupted. Whilst Melody had been gone the day before they had experienced their newfound powers. "I can control others emotions," he told the tom. "Helen here can block all senses to others." My name isLord Voldemort 19:08, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
"I don't want to know what you can do, I want to see it, or feel it." Swamp explained while Fog impatiently churned her paws. Why was she so antsy to see everyone's powers? Hiding something again?Silverstar 19:24, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
Rufus felt the irritation off the tom and quickly extended what he could do. The tom focused on the loner's irritation, focusing on making him feel calm and safe. He could see the small "bubble" of emotion leave himself and surround Swamp, all in his head of course. That was how he imagined it. My name isLord Voldemort 19:47, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
Swamp wanted to remain as his grumpy self, but found himself changing. It was irritating, yet he couldn't do anything about it. "Ok, fine, you're accepted." He said quickly to the tom, before turning to Helen. "Now, it's your turn."Silverstar 19:50, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
Helen nodded, focusing extra hard. A light smoke surrounding her paws as it wafted towards the tom. Her powers honestly scared her, as she didn't know if she'd ever actually need them. Sure they made hunting easier. The smoke surrounded him, if it worked right he wouldn't be able to see, hear, smell, or taste anything. My name isLord Voldemort 19:52, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
Swamp couldn't help but to flatten his ears nervously, slowly leaning away from the creeping smoke. "Ok, ok, I'd rather not have that touch me; you're accepted as well." He took a half-step towards Fog. "Now, what're your names and ages?"Silverstar 19:53, March 31, 2017 (UTC)
